The one-off drama was co-created by Robert Jones and Kath Mattock and written by Robert Jones. It will now return to the channel for a full length series.
Janice Hadlow, Controller, BBC Two, says: “Murder was one of the most striking and distinctive single dramas on BBC Two last year and I’m delighted to see it turn into a series.”
Writer Robert Jones together with producer Kath Mattock spent months in the public galleries of the Old Bailey researching. Using personal testimony, Murder revisits the missing moments in search of the truth. Intercut with CCTV footage, flashback and forensic evidence, the protagonists speak direct to camera giving their version of events, one after the other, but where does the truth lie when the different versions don’t add up?
Co-creator and producer Kath Mattock says: “Making Murder was a real joy – and we very much look forward to finding out what more we can do with this show.”
Commissioned by Janice Hadlow, Controller BBC Two and Ben Stephenson, Controller BBC Drama, Murder is made by Touchpaper for the BBC.
